The Smashing Pumpkins Reunion…

Corgan’s love for Bozo The Clown is well documented (though think how music history might’ve changed had he grown up following John Wayne Gacy instead), so he’s probably already aware that the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Planet Earth selected RHP Trevor Bell with their first pick of the ’05 Amateur Draft. Bell’s late grandfater, Bob, starred as Bozo on Chicago’s WGN from 1960 to 1984.

    If this means Billy’s dropping his boy sports reporter gig (weird how much you and Billy have in common, Gerard) and is going to spend a little less time bringing his curse to the Cubs and more time bringing it to music fans nationwide — Go, Billy, Go!

    Btw, WGN ran a lid-flipping expose the other night that Wrigleyville sports merch is buying “I Believe” bracelets from Walgreens, marking them up for profit, and not turning the mark-up over to charity. I know CSTB has become a clearing house for these, so buyer beware, your “I Believe” bracelet may not be curing anyone’s disease no matter how much you wear it.

    no, it’s true. Me and the former “Small Wonder” star have loads in common. We both like the beisbol, ECW, the Frogs and have at different times, sought to put Matt Sweeney’s face on magazine covers.

    This stalker shit has to stop.

    I prefer the term “rock surgeon” in this instance.
